    This book is fantastic for student use. The concepts of electricity are presented so that the students willingly interact and become engaged in their own learning. The layout is enticing and colorful, as are the flu-though of the formulas, which is unique.

    This book is fantastic! I am an engineer with a degree in physics so I became an instant Kickstarter supporter the very day I heard about this project on MacBreak Weekly. I have 5 kids so you can imagine that I have become quite the math and science tutor over the years. One thing my kids seem to lack is my passion for science. They don't seem to visualize the universe in the way I do. I think it is due to a combination of things. I had an exceptional physics teacher in high school and he gave us great visual aids. This book brings great visuals and an interactive experience that I can use to tutor my children. If we can get this kind of interactivity into the classroom text books, it will help even out the playing field between good teachers and great ones. My area of focus in collage was Mechanics so I can't wait for the "Force and Motion" section to be released. This book met my expectations and more. Keep up the good work!
  • Great Learning Tool!

    Mr. Farley's interactive physics book is sure to be a hit among teenagers and young adults who like learning with interactive media. They will be learning basic concepts of physics in no time at all with engaging pages that come to life!
  • A great presentation of the physics of electricity - mixed with a bit of history

    This book brings to life some of the concepts of electricity and physics in a presentation that entices you to read more. The clean layout and interactive panels facilitate the understanding of the specific topic. Although The Electric Force is written with a high school level of difficulty, it would be wonderful to have a jr. version for younger students. Occasional quizes help to cement the material covered in a chapter and additionally there are experiments which should be performed to fully experience the principles. This is the 4th in a series of Interactive Physics books by Tony Farley (but the first published (sounds like Star Wars to me)) and provides a fantastic structure for this series of books. This approach and layout could be used as a great framework for many other educational books for the K-12 students. Wouldn't it be great if we could actually do some of the experiments right on the iPad?

    Letter to the Author: Hi Tony, I just looked over your book and I must say I am impressed. What a tremendous job you did making a difficult topic appear so alive and interesting. You make me wish I was in High School and I could go through the educational process all over again. You will make a difference in lives of the newer generations. Thanks for your efforts and from the looks of things that was no small feat. Good luck in the future. Regards, Stan Svimonoff (micro kickstarter contributer)
